A Local Government Council in Lagos State has closed down a health center as a preventative measure to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State closed down the Bola Ahmed Tinubu (BAT) Health Centre, Aboru in the area.

According to him, the COVID-19 test will continue to be carried out in the facility to ascertain patients’ health conditions before attending to them.
The chairman also said that they have started fumigation at Primary Health Centres (PHC) Meiran where some staff members had tested positive for the coronavirus.
Famuyiwa said that all the Primary Health Centers just inside the LCDA would also be fumigated to reduce the spread of the pandemic within the community.
“Fumigation has begun especially at the center where the member of staff tested positive to the virus.
“At the same time, we will ensure that all other centers are also fumigated to prevent the spread of the pandemic within the LCDA,” he said.
According to him, a space to be used in the interim has been provided for the nursing mothers for the usual immunization given to children.
“I am glad to inform you that the nurses in good health conditions will immunize babies on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at the open ground opposite the Meiran PHC.
“I advise nursing mothers to adhere strictly to COVID-19 protocols during and after the exercise.”
